Noborder Camp Timisoara, 9.-15. Juni 2003

Timisoara, a city placed in the west of Romania, near the borders with Hungary and Yugoslavia, will be the scene of the first Noborder camp from Romania.

Starting with the mid 80"s, Europe started to show its border regime and legislation. In 1990 the Schengen covention was adopted and common standards on migration policy were established for all member states. All the countries in the European Union, except UK and Ireland, signed this agreement. Starting with that moment, asylum seekers from outside EU could ask for asylum only in the country they succeded to reach. This thing made it impossible for immigrants to choose freely the residency country in conformity with, for example, the language they knew to speak or the place where their familly or friends were. As years passed by, further hurdles in the way of free movement of people were added. Soon, people coming from or transiting through countries in Eastern Europe were refused entry/asylum to Western Europe on the grounds of the "safe country of origin" and "safe third country" agreements among the countries of the EU.

In 9-15 june, Timisoara, a city placed in the west of Romania, near the borders with Hungary and Yugoslavia, will be the scene of the first Noborder camp from Romania. This camp will mean 7 days of actions, discussions and workshops around the central problem - freedom of movement and establishment for everybody. The camp aims to unite activists, imigrants and artists from all aver Romania and Europe, to create an environment for communication, exchange of informations and debates about migration and border regime.
